Don't like soccer? DOESN'T MATTER, THIS IS STILL FUN. Just play along and see what happens, it's something for the whole forum.
Basically, Football Manager has an editor. You can make people up and put them in the game. Then you can simulate and see what happens over the next however many years.
That's where you guys come in. I'm going to add everybody in, and then we can all see how amazing we'd be as professional footballers, or if we just end up kicking it in the Singapore pro league.
So, let's get started.List of stats.
- The max is 20 (world class). Messi is world class, and that's why he's joining Reading.
We're going to take an asset/flaw idea on this. We'll take say, 5 or so stats both ways in which you think you'd be good at/bad at, and voila!
CODE Name (First/Last, or nickname):
Date of Birth:
City of Birth:
Weak foot ability:
You can have more than one nation, and yes, you can pick a 'declared nation'.
The first 2-3 assets/flaws will be the major ones. Alternatively, give a description of how you want to be, ie. 'pacey winger with skills, not the best defender'.Scary picture of all the positions.
You can have more than one position if it makes sense, but pick the main position first. You can be a GK, just say and I'll get the stats for that up.
Personality is what it says on the tin - are you ambitious? A good sport? Able to deal with pressure? Loyal? A firestarter?
Extra is for things like say, your favourite clubs or player, or anything else that is relevant. If you want to flesh out the physical stats , or other things here instead, go for it. Languages? Useful. If you play, tell me a bit about how you play, or at least, how you'd like to play (cutting in for LONGSHOTS).
Here's an example:

City of Birth: Guelph
Height: 1.78m (use whatever system you want)

5 'Assets': Work Rate, Stamina, Tackling, Agility, Determination.

I know it looks a bit daunting, but ask if you have any questions or suggestions.
I hope to see you on the virtual field!
